|Shaquise Buckner (Rt) just a few hours before she was killed|
You didn't and won't hear about this beautiful young girl's death because she was killed by a black person. She scored a couple of lines on local online publications, but that's pretty much it. Shaquise was walking down the street with her gang banger boyfriend last night when someone drove by and shot her in the face, killing her. Murdered in cold blood. Her boyfriend was shot as well, his name hasn't been released.

A 16-year-old girl was killed in a drive-by shooting in the West Englewood neighborhood that also left a man wounded early Saturday.That's that. No description of the shooter, no one demanding justice for this child, why? WHY? It is absolutely infuriating that you race hustling pieces of shit act like you care about the violence affecting the black community but you could not possibly. Giving it lip service by throwing it a mention during a rally is bullshit. What is even more beyond my comprehension is the fact that even their families aren't raising holy hell, likely because they know it is futile. I say not "beyond my comprehension", but it makes perfect sense - absolutely NO money to be made for a race hustler or "high-profile" civil right's attorney when a poor black person kills a black child. How must this mother feel knowing that the killer of her beautiful daughter will likely not even be pursued. No one will demand justice for Shaquise Butler. Just another statistic. She was killed because of gang violence - ah hell, no money in fucking with that either.
